Schlafly Walking Tree Wheat

I helped out with this new beer from my local brewery Schlafly called Walking Tree Wheat. I drew the label, gift box, and a 12 page full-color comic book that comes inside. Here's a bunch of the research, sketches and final illustrations:
We settled on the concept of the 'Walking Tree' and I went full steam ahead.
The label:
The box:
And comic book:
Anyway, check it out! p.s. the beer is delicious.

Redbird #3

I've recently put out a new issue of my comic book REDBIRD, issue #3. You can buy a copy here, or maybe your local cool comics shop (if you're in NY, Pittsburgh, or Chicago).
It's a collection of short strips mostly about Krystal and her cousin Clint, and the small town they live in. There's a new strip about homemade sports. Here was my thumbnail sketch, and how the final panels turned out.
Thanks for checking it out!

I just made a few more of these 5-color cat screenprints and put 'em up for sale. They're based on this painting I did a couple of years ago. White, yellow, fluorescent pink, brown and silver on wheat paper, 22" x 15".

Madballs #1

Issue #1 of ROAR Comics' new MADBALLS comic is out today, and I drew an alternate cover and a 5-page backup strip. Look for it at comic book stores everywhere.
Here are what my thumbnails and one finished spread look like. Puns and gross-out humour galore.
MADBALLS 4EVER. I gotta get my old lunchbox back from my parent's house.

Breweries of St. Louis

I illustrated this beer map for Explore St. Louis and the St. Louis Brewers' Guild. Here are some sketches and process pics:
Several breweries around town have slick prints for sale for $10 I believe. They've definitely got some at the Schlafly Taproom (where I took the snapshot above) and Bottleworks. The project itself was an outgrowth of this neighborhood map I drew for the Visitor's Commission a couple years ago:

The Smelly Side of 1875 St. Louis

There's gonna be a livestream from the Missouri History Museum tonight (Thursday, January 28th) covering some of my favorite parts of A Walk in 1875 St. Louis, the SMELLY parts!
I imagine they'll look at the 3-story outhouses, the limestone sinkholes overflowing with filthy rainwater, the cell-culture ice cubes...

The questionable plumbing, the home remedies, the delicious recipes...

The super markets, "fresh" meats and vegetables, etc.!

Check out the Missouri History Museum on Periscope tonight at 7 CST for all the grizzy details. Smell ya later!
